PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has just sent out a few preliminary comments about the company's performance during the fourth quarter of 2012. Nokia's figures are a good indicator for how well Windows Phone 8 is doing, and, in all honesty, I'm not exactly blown away. Apparently, neither was Nokia itself, since the company decided to redefine their Asha phones from feature phone to smartphone to prop up their smartphone sales figures.

Notice how Thom never answered any of my points and instead brought up a semantic argument.

His statement boiled down to there being a lack of interest (which regardless of how you both spin it, is a crisis) and pointed to a lack of WP7 apps being upgraded to WP8 by current developers.

I gave many counter points to why this is not exactly the case, yet received no response.

This is how things go at OSNews, you write an entire comment, and people nitpick one or two things and ignore the rest of it.

The problem is that your premise is wrong. When you put words in my mouth that I have never said, and even after pointing that out continue to dig yourself in, I'm at a loss. Why should I have to defend something I never said?

Because you having not said it, and you claiming you never said it, are not the same thing.

However, there still lies the fact that even if you hadn't said it verbatim, your statement is factually incorrect and my points still apply to it.

I don't expect you to reply to it, or even acknowledge that you're wrong, because you never do. Especially not when it comes to Windows Phone. You're the same person who pushed that ridiculous smear that Windows Phone had a widespread WiFi reconnect bug, or the smear that MetroTube wasn't constantly being broken by YouTube, take your pick.

You have a severe problem with budging from your positions, even when you're 100%, completely wrong.
